HONOLULU — The Honolulu Board of REALTORS® released resale figures today for the month of January. According to the analysis conducted by the Board, using data collected from its computerized Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system, the statistics are:
During January, sales of single-family homes and condominiums both increased by 8.4 percent from January 2013. The median price paid for single-family homes in January increased 5.8 percent from the same month last year to $629,500. The median price for condominiums increased 1.6 percent from January of last year to $320,000. According to the Days on Market indicator, single-family homes were on the market for an average of 22 days and condominiums for 21 days.
“January was a good month for the industry, with a healthy increase in the number of homes and condominiums sold compared to January of last year,” said Julie Meier, president of the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®. “There was a substantial drop in the single-family home median price from December 2013, but that’s not unusual and can be attributed to the seasonality of the market. Median sales prices of both single-family homes and condominiums were up year over year.”
The public is encouraged to visit the Board’s Internet web site at www.HiCentral.com to see what’s happening in the housing market.
